NOTIS is a non-profit organization, and a regional chapter of the American Translators Association covering the northwest corner of the United States: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.

NOTIS strives to promote the recognition and advancement of the professions of translation and interpretation; to promote high standards, and to protect and safeguard the rights and interests of professional translators and interpreters; provide information which will assist newcomers to the profession and enhance the abilities of established practitioners; and to assist members in marketing their services, though NOTIS does not serve as a referral service; inform the general public, clients and persons in allied fields about NOTIS and about translation and interpretation, raising awareness and respect for the value of the professions; and seek to influence public policy as it applies to the professions of translation and interpretation.

The Northwest Translators & Interpreters Society (NOTIS) was established in April 1988 as a forum for professional translators and interpreters in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. In view of our strategic position in international trade and of its growing importance in international travel, practicing translators and interpreters, as well as the local and regional business communities benefit from the existence of an active professional group like NOTIS.
